Miss Merx’s Mobile Nails

Posted · 10 Comments

Last week I had my nails done AT HOME by Miss Merx. What a treat to have your nails done in the privacy of your own home! I don’t really like sitting in a salon with my feet in a washing-up bowl and quite honestly, I rarely have the time to spare to go anyway. Facials, hair colour, body treatments, massages – yes (though massage in my own home would also be ideal!), but nails? No. I have pretty OK hands and find that I can go a year or so without needing an overhaul, but my feet do tend to need a little extra care. I think that doing your own pedicure is almost impossible – feet are more awkward to reach, and you need to soak them properly and then work up a sweat with the old foot-file. It’s a LOT of hassle!

Nice, then, to have my tootsies seen to in the comfort of my own living room. I now have beautifully neat and shiny nails and my skin is smoother and softer – and I didn’t even have to set foot outside my front door. That’s something I could seriously see happening again. It’s easier to fit in an hour’s pedicure appointment when there’s no travel time involved!

Londoners, have a look at Miss Merx’s treatment menu – she covers most areas and also Hertfordshire.

Non-Londoners will have to make do with my pedicure hypnotherapy:  visualise your pedicure and it shall be done. Look into my eyes – in them, not around them – your feet are beautiful and smooth, your nails are….red? You don’t want red? Pink! You have pink nails, your cuticles are trimmed, you have a slightly achey arse from sitting in the same position for too long. That’ll be wtenty quid, please…

**twenty quid, rather.**

    @Allie – one day, you’ll wonder why you were into him at all, promise!
    Meanwhile, put some cucumber slices on those eyes, and then go shopping for a nice new you that doesn’t need a crap boyfriend xxx

    I have never had my nails done (always just do them myself), so I don’t even know what it’s like to have a proper manicure or pedicure, but this sounds amazing! Talk about pampering! Your tootsies look absolutely divine!

    Ruth,

    Could you do a post on break up skincare? I’ve split with a boyfriend of 4 years and have not stopped crying for days. My skin is horribly puffy and angry at the constant saltwater drowning and tissue assault.

    Just an idea…would be so helpful!

    Wow! Her prices are really reasonable considering she does all the travelling.

    I’ve only had one pedicure and I’ve never had a manicure – there’s no point when your hands spend most of their day in water. Saying that though, I’d love to try gel nails.

    Anyway, looking great, Ruth. Red is always a winner!

    I wish I was getting pedicures at home.

    This sounds amazing. I love getting pedicures but hate the hassle of having to tiptoe around for the next hour petrified of smudging it! x

    Ok…that just proves it: London IS indeed the most civilized and wondrous place in the world!
